“I don't think we need a magic wand. We need to exert pressure, we need to exercise citizenship, and with this we will succeed." - Dina Meza. Journalist. Honduras
While human rights defenders make invaluable contributions to upholding justice and the rule of law, these ‘Invisible Mandelas’ often do not receive the global recognition they deserve and require for their safety.

In 18 minutes of moving testimonies and interviews, this film celebrates the vital contribution HRDs are making, as well as highlighting the importance of the support they receive from the international community.
